Heart Contest Results and Embroidery Downloads

Standard

We have two winners in the heart contest, and some machine embroidery designs for you to download!  If you get started now, your dolls can have a new shirt before Valentine’s day!

The first was a flamingo by Joy and I was inspired by the bird on this:
 
 to embroider the flamingo on contrasting felt and applique it.  This turns out to be a great strategy to get an embroidered motif onto stretch knits without the difficulties that sometimes arise when embroidering on knits.
Anna’s motif had a boho vibe that I loved!  I digitized it first in a color version to put on a white T-shirt, but playing around with color combinations I got inspired by traditionally embroidered Mexican blouses that use white thread on brightly colored fabric and Julika’s blouse was born.  Covering the yoke with lace is an easy and trendy way to add interest without embroidering.

You can download the contest embroidery designs in .pes format here:
Please note that the flower-heart motif has a lot of threads to cut and is a dense design – not the individual density of the stitches, but how close the elements are together.  My machine shredded the top thread and made a few bird nests underneath, so use at your own risk and stabilize well!
 
Because April “asked” for one to keep, I also did a version of the OG heart logo which stitches out beautifully:
It’s been modified somewhat from the original, but is similar enough that you shouldn’t put it on things to sell.
Love Ten Ping?  I have good news!  The birthday fairy did not come through with Zuri 😦 but did bring Ten Ping a friend named Gigi and I’m hard at work on some sweet little spring patterns for her that I’m hoping will be ready by the end of March.
April’s next journal is coming out soon and might have some hidden surprises in it.  Stay tuned!
